Is it red flag if you the man you were hypothetically married to hides his relationship status on Facebook or don’t wear his ring in public?

Not posting it on Facebook would not necessarily be a red flag, cos some people are more private on their social media. If you had that showing but then he suddenly hid or removed it? That’s different. 🚩 As for the wedding ring, why is he taking it off in public unless his job requires it (health and safety/gets his hands dirty a lot) unless he is trying to appear available to other women? If he has always worn it and suddenly has stopped? 🚩If he has hidden the status and got rid of the ring at a similar time? 🚩

Why do you think some people care less and less with time about how they might make someone feel and only really care about satisfying their egos? What kind of a change does a person go through that eventually makes them that way?

Two words: Power and Fear.
"The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear."
> Deepak Chopra

Miért szereted az ask-ot? Kérdezni vagy válaszolni szeretsz jobban?

Szeretem, pont azért amiért a többi social médiát is használom, egyébként átlátható és egyszerű platform, szeretem hogy számolja a válaszaimat ( ne kérdezzétek🤷🏽‍♀️) talán ez az egyszerű válaszom lenne rá. Válaszolni szeretek a legjobban(:

Buenas tardes, ¿Alguna vez has hecho amistades duraderas por alguna red social (no de citas)? ¿Dónde fue? Si es que sí, ¿Sigues manteniéndolas hoy en día o con el tiempo cada uno habéis tomado vuestro camino? Muchas gracias por tu tiempo. Un saludo

If ppl dont want commentary, why do they post publicly and allow comments? Keep their business to themselves.. and if not, lock comments. Problem solved.

That doesn't make the behaviour of those leaving negative comments okay. I am talking about their behaviour alone. They are surely not mentally well. What drives them to leave rude comments? Jo unwanted opinions hain apnay dimagh tak rakhain zuban py lana lazmi nai hota.
Ap ghar sy bahar nikaltay toh hogay hi public mai , agar log apko bilawaja bully karna apka mazak urana shuru kardain would that be ok? Would telling you to stay home, away from public be a reasonable suggestion? Social media is no different.

Why don't you post selfies on here but you do on other social medias?

There are a couple of reasons why, but it mostly boils down to privacy and security. I'm a private person by nature and I'm not wholly comfortable with having a bunch of pictures of myself floating around on a public forum. It's one thing to share them on a private account where I can control who is able to see them. But here? Where potentially anyone can? No thanks.
Call me overly cautious, but it's a risk I'd rather not take.
Another reason why I opt to remain faceless (for the most part) on here is that I want the focus of my page to remain squarely on my answers! I want the people who interact with me to do so because they enjoy my stories or find what I have to say interesting! Not because of the way I look.

Do you text boys first?

That totally depends on the situation.
My friends I text first if I need to ask them something.
My boyfriend and I text basically continuously, so I’m not sure who starts first lol. At the beginning of our relationship I started first.
On social media: only if I asked a question or if I want to know how somebody is doing, but it’s not often that that happens. 😅😂

Is it okay to block someone if they are your ex or someone from the past year just don't like?

alpharean’s Profile PhotoChatter Box
Yeah, I think it’s okay to block somebody or at least unfollow them if you don’t like them or don’t want to see them on your feed.
It’s your social media and I feel like it should be a place that is entertaining to you, not a place where you’re feeling forced to watch updates from people you don’t want to see.

Você acha fácil ou difícil encontrar pessoas interessantes pra conversar ?

Difícil. Não porque me considero especial ou sei lá o que. Muito pelo contrário, eu me acho é bem regular e nada fora do normal. Diria até abaixo da média pra certos "grupos". É que eu simplesmente não tenho interesse em papear com as pessoas.
Talvez um "oi, tudo bem?" ou alguma conversa que dure, no máximo, uns 5 minutos. Sei que, por questão de prudência social e até inteligência emocional, eu deveria procurar interagir mais, mostrar mais interesse. Mas eu não consigo. Me falta vontade.

I think people should go back to book reading and story telling phase. Social media of today has become complex, boring and limited by the latest algorithms. Your thoughts?

Hi Liu. How have you been? /Alex

constantineadonis41056’s Profile PhotoAdonis
Hi, Alex!
I've been good. After the second semester started, I don't have much time for social media, so I stopped using my smartphone and switched to the Light Phone 2, which has been an interesting experience. All social media is now on my laptop, and when I have time, I check it.
In general, my life is good. I'm still going to work, college, Bible study group, and church on Sundays, and the rest of my time I'm either doing homework or making plans with my friends.
I've read your posts about your updates and I'm glad you can work fewer hours now and commit your time to the things that are important to you ☺️

In actuality the limelight on social media attracts ppl in a way that everyone wants to be a part of it,ppl are getting intensely involved in different social platforms just for getting fake fame no matter what they are actually going through in their life which results in more depression ,anxiety....thts the only reason ppl have 0 interests in books,novels and good activities....bcz limelight is more important thn good health for all of us...we cant do anything bcz we all are stuck with this sad fact😊

What would you think in a situation where you barely speak to someone but when you decide to contact them they block you immediately on a social media platform? Would you think it’s valid and understandable that they blocked you?

I would say that person has lost interest in communicating with you and it is time to move on with your own life and forget about them. Live and let live.

wärst du der Freund, den du als Freund haben willst?

Ja, ganz ehrlich. Ich kann Menschen liebevoll in den A.rsch treten, wenn ihr Reflexionsvermögen oder ihre Einsicht versagen sollten, zuhören bis spät in den Morgen und mich dabei genauso vulnerabel und offen zeigen, bei Problemen und Sorgen Hilfestellung und emotionale Stützen ermöglichen, Freiraum und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten anbieten, ohne mich dabei selbst in den Fokus zu rücken, mit Memes und Tierbildern unterhalten, mich entschuldigen, Rücksicht zeigen, Probleme offen ansprechen und mir Insider merken, die sich über die Zeit auftun. Ich bin dabei weder perfekt noch frei von Fehlern und eigenen Marotten, aber ich bin verdammt nochmal über die Jahre als Mensch geistig vorangeschritten and it shows in my social relationships.

What are the reasons of that a girl we were texting with each other has suddenly disappeared and stopped interacting on social media? We've just chatted for 2-3 days and the chemistry was very good! Why would she do that of she's really interested in me as a man?

I know neither of you nor your circumstances, so I don’t know how you think I’d know why someone has stopped texting you!
After only a couple of days, it could be anything from something that you said, to them just being ill, or anything!🤷🏻‍♂️
I’m afraid you’ll just have to hang on there and see if they get back in touch - and if they don’t, remember not to harass them or anything.
Good luck!

Does it really get better or do we just get used to it?

"Social Chaos" by Alex
Social discord exists because the ruling class profits from social chaos, crisis, division, racism, poverty, suffering and war. These are simply methods used by the ruling class to control people and maintain their grip on power. Unfortunately, too many people willingly sacrifice their freedoms for the illusion of safety and security and then accept this abuse as necessary for their survival.

In every social site,or Wherever you go, Girls are in demand, Bt then, Why everyone wants only Boy as their child ???

curosity46’s Profile Photoritesh kumar
Statement 1 : In every social site, or Wherever you go, Girls are in demand.
What demand are you talking about brother ? IDK about social site, but elsewhere wherever we go, if its a workplace, then there's a hiring team, there are some professions where girls are preferred, but its not generalised. And vice - versa is true, at some places , men are preferred, and at most other places, jobs are gender neutral. Beyond this, you go to any recreational place or anywhere else, its just a person's choice to go there, there is no "Demand" factor.
Also for this "social site" , where do you get this idea that Girls are in "Demand" ? Social Media is just a place to be , everyone can choose to be there or not be there for XYZ reasons, social Media isn't a marketplace where something is in "Demand".
Statement 2 : Why everyone wants only Boy as their child?
IDK where are you getting this idea for "Everyone" but "Everyone" doesn't want a boy child, some don't even want children, some want 1 boy 1 girl, some want 1 child any one, some want boy, some want girl, this is just a personal choice, its not a generalized thing. You may want a boy child, maybe you can also justify why you want a boy child, but it doesn't mean everyone wants a boy child.
Now , What are you trying to say by your question actually? Online aao to sabko ladkiya chahiye and ghar par sabko ladke chahiye, something like this?

Pregunta de última hora. Te pregunto, ¿Te desaburre realmente Ask?

Iges, hola. 🌷
Buen resto de semana. 🕊
Lo hace.
Puede que para algunos sea una red social más pero para mí no es así puesto que Ask se ha convertido en un refugio donde puedo explayarme y expresarme sin ningún tipo de remordimiento, mostrar mis gustos sin ser juzgada, sin sentir pena de ello y en cierto modo, me gusta dedicarle tiempo a responder preguntas donde cuya interrogante busca una reflexión profunda, me entretiene leer respuestas de otros usuarios y conocer otras gentes, opiniones, puntos de vistas, y un sin fin de cosas más.
Pregunta de última hora Te pregunto Te desaburre realmente Ask

You may cause a war in the USA.

Honestly, I have no idea how women do it. The constant sexual harassment and objectification of men and how incredibly toxic women are to other women. As a bisexual man, a man in general women already hate me for simply existing and forget even trying to compliment a girl. I can't even talk to women anymore without getting chewed out and they used to be the people I always went to. Just the end of 2022 I have never experienced so much sexual harassment and objectification from MEN in my life and now WOMEN too? What the hell is this? I can't go on social media without feeling like shit about myself and that's incredibly sad.

Have you ever had to deal with any kind of customer service? How'd it go? ☎️

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Yes, many times. As a technical instructor I had to develop and deliver course material that satisfied the customer and either met or exceeded their expectations.
When I worked as a Network Engineer I had to design and implement customer networks, answer technical questions and troubleshoot problems. As long as I resolved the network problem efficiently while minimizing down time or network disruptions, customers were satisfied. However, whenever a problem could not be resolved or took too long to resolve, customers would complain.
The truth is that I enjoy solving problems and customer satisfaction was always a priority of mine. My father would tell me that if you are going to do a job, do it right the first time. Unfortunately, too many companies today do not prioritize customer service and they hire poorly trained staff who lack good social and troubleshooting skills.

What memory of yours has the most love or happiness attached to it?

"Adoption" by Alex
Oh there are so many. I would say it was the adoption of our daughter. We started the adoption process before our daughter was born in 2006. We were notified of her birth and given 24 hours to make our decision. For the next 7 months she was cared for by a beautiful foster family who we still maintain contact with.
So in July 2007 we flew to Guatemala City to meet our daughter, the care givers and the lawyer and social worker. I remember it as though it were yesterday. My wife and I were staying at the hotel and received a call informing us that our daughter was waiting for us in the lobby. For me, it was love at first sight. We met everyone involved in this process, signed the necessary paperwork and brought our daughter back to our room.
Since my wife was not feeling well, I had the honor and privilege of caring for our baby until the plane departed the following day. As one can imagine, she was upset, crying and I would say traumatized from the uncertainty and drastic change to her environment. Every time I put the baby into the crib to sleep she started crying and would only stop when I held her. So for the next 24 hours I held her in my arms and when we awoke in the morning, I noticed a change in her demeanor. She stopped crying and started to smile and laugh because a bond, based upon mutual love and trust, had begun to form.
I could talk for hours and days about this experience because for me it completely changed my life for the better, for she is the apple of my eye. We do everything together which includes: performing music together, playing golf, tennis, helping her with homework (science, math, reading). She also likes to challenge me and debate me. She fondly calls me an old man and a geek because to her friends I am old enough to be her grandpa and because of my passion for music and poetry. There are times, for example, when her friends visit and hear me wailing away on my guitar or bass in my studio and I suppose they are not exposed to that type of behavior. Too funny, right? The best part is that whenever she is with her friends and they are giggling and behaving like teens, when I walk into the room, it becomes dead silent as though a loved one died and we are showing respect at their funeral service.
So... I have to say the adoption of our daughter and our time together are my favorite memories and the memories that give my life it's greatest meaning and purpose.

Cum pot sa nu mai fiu frustrata si hateful ?

Să rezolvi lucrurile din interiorul tău. Frustrările și răutatea vin din anumite nemulțumiri pe care le ai tu cu tine. Încearcă să te concentrezi pe persoana ta, pe lucruri care te fac să te simți fericită și împlinită, să citești pentru a te deconecta și a sta departe de social media unde implicit se întâmplă hate-ul și unde toți etalează vieți perfecte etc. Mergi la terapie, discută cu cineva de încredere, scrie într-un jurnal ce te face să te simți așa de rău încât să ataci alți oameni…
Și în final gândește-te că nu câștigi absolut nimic din asta. 😊

What helped you the most with your social anxiety? 🙃

Here's the thing, I didn't know I had social anxiety until two or three weeks into my sessions. I went back to therapy because I had an anxiety attack that lead me to the E.R which caused some PTSD and panic disorder. It doesn't matter which type of anxiety disorder you have, they treat it with CBT and exposure therapy. Being in therapy before helped because I knew I had to put in the work and use my coping mechanisms. Having my coworker hold me accountable, put me in uncomfortable situations and on the spot helped me *so much*. You have to learn and accept the feeling of being uncomfortable and riding it out as you're asking a question or doing something in front of people. You have to take baby steps, you cannot start with the thing that caused you the most anxiety because you're going to want to quit.

Would you have moved to a big city when you were in your 20s?

I think the ideal is being in a smaller city nearby a big metropolis. Like Cambridge / Boston, or Oakland / San Francisco. Far enough away that you don't feel crowded every time you leave the house, but you still have access to the jobs, nightlife, dating scene, etc of the big city. It's definitely overrated to pay a premium to live downtown somewhere that's super busy. Noise is constant, crime is higher, there's always some bullshit going on on the street, traffic sucks. If you're going to do it, do it while you're still young... the older you get the lower your patience for dense city living becomes. Find a mellow neighborhood with a good pub and a local bakery instead. I lived in a few larger cities in my twenties but in hindsight putting down roots in a smaller town earlier would have saved me a lot of time and money. With that said I had a lot of good experiences and gained a lot of experience working in a more competitive environment that I carried with me making the smaller city experience a breeze by comparison.
Living in a city was okay for a year or two, but afterwards I really just wanted to leave again. Too much constant stimulation, too many people, not enough nature, I couldn't stand it. I thought moving to a bigger city would help my dating and friend prospects, but if anything it was tougher because my manners and values were too different. Honestly I still can't stand city-native type people, idk what it is but 90% of the time they strike me as so weird and off putting. But I did meet my gf there (who's from the sticks herself), so that part worked out.
I moved from a small town to a bigger city a few weeks after I turned 18. Loved it, still love it, and would highly recommend giving it a shot even if for only a small amount of time. If you don’t like it, do the fun stuff and bounce after a few years. If anything you’ll appreciate your small town that much more. For me, being in the middle of it all is better than space and tranquility. But there’s not right answer and I self aware enough to know that I might not always feel that way.
Hell no, I've always hated Chicago, even the nice areas fucking suck to live there. Too much shit going on, no parking, and everyone acts like assholes. It was only a 20 minute Uber to go out and party over there anyway so its not like I missed out in my early 20s. My friends were always dragging me out to the bars and clubs at that age.
I know alot of people that do it for a social life. I had a good one while being in the burbs. Only trade off is I have to drive everywhere with the exception of some pools, a shopping area (with food, grocery stores, pharmacy, and gas in it), and woods/the river.
